Internships

Become a Desai Intern!

In addition to hosting teams, Desai employs a group of student interns for each cohort. Interns have skills across software development, marketing, financial modeling, and design, and work as Desai contractors for all the startups in our program.

WHAT DO INTERNS DO?

In the past, interns have developed web applications, conducted customer discovery research, created social media campaigns, designed style guides and user interfaces, made promo videos, and held photoshoots—there are no typical projects!

WHO CAN APPLY?

Internships are open to any University of Michigan student who has a passion for entrepreneurship and is ready to help real companies grow at a fast pace. We've recruited interns from the Ross School of Business, College of Engineering, School of Information, Stamps School of Art and Design, University of Michigan Law School, and the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. Students from all University of Michigan schools and colleges will be considered.

 
Applications for our Summer 2019 Internship Program will open in December 2018. Check back soon!

"By applying what I've learned in class to each startup's unique needs, I'm gaining a wide range of practical experience working with just one cohort. Desai's fast-paced, high-growth environment makes sure that I'm learning and adapting everyday."

"Not only have I done impactful work that helps the startups move forward, but I also have autonomy in what I do. From managing events to generating social media content, I have ownership of my work and that is incredibly liberating!"
